Swashbuckling youngsters at Cromer Junior School had a chance to hone their seafaring skills, from map-reading, to hunting for treasure, as part of a pirate-themed activity fortnight culminating in a dress-up day for staff and pupils.
After choosing their own pirate names – which ranged from Flint-Hearted and Red Socks, to Blunderbuss and Gold-Finger - the young buccaneers made pirate finger puppets, sang songs, wrote stories, and created pirate-themed artwork.
The Year 3 pupils also took part in a map-reading workshop with Adrian Hall of the Norwich-based school geography organisation Active Outdoor Discovery.
And they took a trip to Cromer Museum, where they went on a treasure hunt, did a navy drill, and created a story board, before staging a drama about joining a pirate crew.
Joan Fields, who organised the activity fortnight with fellow Year 3 teacher Sally Osborne, said youngsters had been keen to get involved, with one pupil saying the dress-up day was 'the best day ever'.
